Consumers want control over their digital lives. They want to determine when, where and how they communicate and interact with the important institutions, businesses and individuals in their lives. As technology expands our ability to control our own data, corporations today are finding responsible new ways to make sure that their business practices respect consumer preferences and expectations.
Standards of privacy are changing in society, and more companies are committed to following the highest levels of consumer privacy protection. More companies are dedicated to providing each and every customer with notice, transparency, choice and consent when it comes to how their personal data and private information is managed.
